6:01 am
in fact just about all of us are dealing with wind chills in the teens. read those pages 290 to 300. that's good because those higher numbers mean we're starting to get towards the second half of the school year. won't be too much longer before summer. by 3 o'clock 39 degrees which is fairly seasonable just a couple of degrees below average. when i step inside we do have much colder air coming in. generally speaking over the next week, karen. >> now signing the kids homework pages good, day. looking outside at i-95 we've got this accident. it has been pushed off to the side. it was blocking the left lane. no longer blocking any lanes at this point but off to the side on i-95 northbound. this is between academy and woodhaven. it's not causing a big delay at this point. southbound the other side of the highway here we see some building volume coming in from yardley or langhorne. no major delay just yet on i-95 and the big picture reflecting that with speeds mostly in the 50's on i-95 as well as the schuylkill and the blue route. but the problem this morning has been in chester county on
6:02 am
the 30 bypass. westbound they have been intermittently blocking it between 340 and reeceville road. the right lane is still blocked because of an accident involving an overturned tractor-trailer that was carrying paper. it went down an embankment. tow truck has been out there trying to pull it out of the embankment. just the right lane blocked right now. in the meantime stick to business route 30 or the pennsylvania turnpike westbound instead t on the northeast extension we had some construction going none both directions. that just cleared and in new jersey a look at 42 northbound and all is well. we're dry today so no big problems on the roads, matt and tam. >> thank you karen. we also have details on a two-vehicle crash that brought traffic tragedy to bucks county. one person was killed and two others were hurt when the vehicles collided in richland township. it happened along the 1400 block of southwest end boulevard at 8:00 last night. the two injured people were taken to the hospital. here is an "action news" exclusive. the city of philadelphia is investigating how sensitive court documents ended up scattered across city streets. hundreds of papers littered the area around 29th and
6:03 am
wharton streets in the grays ferry section yesterday. the papers included social security numbers, addresses and phone numbers. it appears the paperwork came from the philadelphia adult probation and parole department. "action news" tried to contact officials there but we have not heard back. the city streets department is investigating. >> the white house has confirmed that kayla mueller that american woman held hostage by isis has died. this coming days after the terror group claimed that mueller was killed in a jordanian air strike. erin o'hearn is live at the big board with more including reaction from her family. erin she sounds like she was a special young woman. >> reporter: it's a heartbreaking story and it is hard to imagine the kind of pain kayla mueller's family is enduring after isis sent them photographs proving she was dead. now we are learning more about the letter her parents received from kayla and the failed u.s. attempt to bring her home. the 26-year-old from arizona was captured by isis militants 18 months ago while working to help war refugees, a cause she was very vocal about and
6:04 am
staunchly committed to. during her captivity she managed to smuggle out a letter to her family. she wrote in part "just the thought of you all sends me into a fit of tears." over the weekend her isis captors sent her family pictures of her body after claiming she died in a jordanian air strike but u.s. officials blame the terrorist group for her death. sources involved in an attempt to rescue her say she was given to a senior isis leader as a kind of bride or reward. >> it's as tough as anything that i do having conversation with parents who understandably want by any means necessary for their children to be safe. >> kayla has touched the heart of the world. the world grieves with us. >> reporter: so hard to see that family. the three other americans held hostage by isis were all beheaded by the group. officials say they don't know exactly how or when she died.
6:05 am

6:07 am
the powerball was up since 5:30. people are buying their tickets. $485 billion on the line so we've got a little advice for you as far as what numbers would be best for you to play. your best bet is actually to go with a quick pick. more than 70 percent of the winners take home the prize by letting the computer pick for them. the most played number is 26. so, i don't know about you but i'd stay away from that because i don't want to share all the millions. i guess it would be share it and that not have it. the number that has shown up the most in the powerball winning lineup 20. your odds for taking home the big prize is one in 175 million and that is growing as more people are playing but that is not stopping people from dreaming. >> odds are pretty rough. if you don't buy one you don't any chance. >> i would buy everything but i would want someone to take control of that. i know myself. i would spend it all. >> reporter: all right, so
6:08 am
we're here again at the 7-eleven here in south philadelphia. we've seen several people come. most people are buying multiple tickets, kind of trying to increase their odds. you have until just before 10 o'clock tonight to get your tickets. so think long and hard about what you want to play or just let the computer pick for you and take whatever it gives you. we're live in south philadelphia, eva pilgrim channel6 "action news." >> or be happy with what you have. thank you eve ranch this is the only place to watch the powerball drawing. tune in right before "action news" at 11:00 to see it live. >> it would be great if it was somebody from our area. >> it would be exciting. storm tracker 6 live double scan shows you we have no precipitation out there. pretty nice morning commute. if you take a look outside there's stars overhead. we'll see the sun come up nice and bright over the horizon. down the shore you might have a couple clouds but it is still cold similar to yesterday morning. right now we're at 27 degrees in philadelphia, 18 degrees in allentown, 30 degrees in sea isle city and there is a bit of a breeze coming down out of the north that's giving you wind chill in the teens so bundle up. you'll need your sunglasses on the highways and by ways,
6:09 am
though. i-95 at the pennsylvania turnpike, all other major roads will see sunshine early and then this afternoon there might be a couple more clouds sweeping through at times. generally speaking a fairly bright day. up in allentown we're going for a high of 36. sun mixing with occasional clouds. chilly conditions up in the lehigh valley this afternoon. and down the shore in atlantic city we're going for a high a little better, 42 degrees, sun mixing with clouds, still cool but very seasonable in terms of this kind of -- or this time of year. 39 degrees is your high in philadelphia, a few degrees below average. sun mixing with clouds, chilly conditions, winds out of the north at seven to 14. not all that strong. and as we roll through the day, still in the 20's by 8 o'clock, 32 the freezing mark by 11:00. 38 by 2:00. your high today is 39 around 3 o'clock. tomorrow we've got some cloud cover in play mixing with some sunny breaks and occasionally there will be a flurry around or in the afternoon. a snow shower but it doesn't look like it's going to amount top a whole lot. i think this is going to be one of these cases where if you happen to be in an area that gets one of these spotty
6:10 am
snow showers, you might get a light coverage. but the chances are pretty good that you're missing out on this. models certainly feel that way. three of them in philadelphia are showing no accumulation. the other just a coating. and up in allentown maybe a little better chance, one model says nothing a couple more pretty much a coating. there is one that says maybe a half inch but again really it just depends on where one of those little quick hitting snow showers sets up. so, nuisance precipitation tomorrow afternoon and evening. partly sunny today 39 degrees. tomorrow a couple of snow showers around with little or no accumulation in most spots 39 is the high again. then the story becomes the cold. on friday, windy and bitter, a high of just 23. dropping to 11 at night. on saturday, valentine's day 34 is the high. there could be a couple of snow showers building back in in the afternoon and evening. for now it looks fairly light. some of that might go into sunday morning. we'll keep watching that in case it changes. for now fairly light. sunday windy and frigid a high of 19 and a very rare single digit low in february. we usually get those in january but it looks like

6:34 am
unsettling. these are kids and championships aside the basic idea of sportsmanship and fair play should trump any trophy or accolade. you may remember this heartbreaking moment, the game that brought the taney dragons' magical run to an end and jackie robinson west went on to beat las vegas to win the championship. but now little league officials are investigating claims chicago may have stacked its team with players from outside its district lines to create a so-called super team. ceo of little league baseball told our sister station espn that the findings of a recent review of the matter are complete and again the results of that investigation could be released today. if officials have found these claims are true, many believe including the father of a taney dragons player that jackie robinson west should be stripped of its championship title. >> it's not up for me to decide. that if he broke the rules i don't think they should just hand the title to las vegas.
6:35 am
i think that las vegas and the taney dragons should have to play another game and i don't care if they play it in the snow. >> jackie robinson west wouldn't be the first team to have its little league title stripped. in 19 into a philippines team was stripped of its title after using players outside its district and who were over age. in 2001 a team from the bronx was forced to forfeit after the pitcher was revealed to be over age. so again the results of those findings may be released today. matt, back to you. >> okay, thanks so much, erin. time right now is 6:35 and the family of a pennsylvania state trooper who was killed in a training accident is not satisfied with the outcome of the investigation. corporal richard schroder's load gun went off at the montgomery county public safety campus back in september. 26-year-old david kedra a state trooper was killed. schroder faces five counts of reckless endangerment. >> this is a slap on the wrist for this man and a slap in the face for david our family and for justice.

6:37 am
it's actually been more than two months since anyone has won a powerball jackpot so the prize has been gradually growing from its 40 million starting point. while the chance of winning is just one in 175 million and growing as more and more people play, that is not stopping some people from dreaming big. >> well, i'm getting up there. i would do a little more traveling and stuff. got to take care of the kids and stuff, grand kids. everybody would be taken care of. >> i would take care of my daughter, you know, get her mom a new car just chill. >> reporter: back out here live with talked with workers here at this convenience store and they tell us that right now it's actually a little slow 'cause people still waking up thinking about the powerball but later this afternoon they expect to have a line out the door probably about 2, 3 o'clock. so my advice to you if you're planning on playing the powerball today get your tickets early. we're live here in south philadelphia, eva pilgrim channel6 "action news".

pretty good looking day. it's not going to feel too badly this afternoon. 27 by a it clock, freezing mark by 11:00. we'll get a high of close to 40 and today the winds will be a little bit less than yesterday. high temperatures up in the lehigh valley mid 30's in trenton and allentown, 37 in reading, 40 in millville and 42-degree readings in cape may and atlantic city. chilly today but seasonable. and as we take a look at tomorrow, we'll feature a mix of clouds and sun through most of the day. there is the chance of a flurry through especially the afternoon and then into the evening and there might even be a couple of scattered snow showers. where these happen to pop up and hit through the afternoon and evening, they could put down a quick light accumulation but as you can see they're spotty and not everybody is necessarily going to see these. the models really not too excited about this. three of them have no accumulation at all in philadelphia. one just a trace. if you go up to allentown, there's a little better chance of accumulation but one model up there has nothing and the highest one has about a half an inch and really i think the
6:40 am
reason you're seeing the low amounts first of all is that there's not going to be much moisture and reason there's disagreement sheer it really just depends on where you happen to get one of those snow showers. so light nuisance stuff tomorrow afternoon, tomorrow evening. 39 degrees partly sunny today. tomorrow some snow showers in some neighborhoods a high of 39. little or no accumulation in most areas. and then friday the story becomes the cold. it's windy it's bitter, a high of 23, wind chills in the single digits for a good portion of the day. we're back up to about 34 on saturday with another round of snow showers possible in the evening and perhaps into sunday morning. again for now this looks like light accumulation. and then sunday look out a high of just 19 and a rare february overnight low in the single digits. this is going to be really brutal. on sunday i could see wind chills down around zero for a good portion of the day. and certainly in the single digits at the best of times. and then we get into monday, still very cold, 22 degrees for president's day. 32 on tuesday with a wintry mix possible. >> okay, thank you david. it is now 6:40 and dating
